India My Love: A Spiritual Journey

Overview

India is not just a geography or history. It is not only a nation, a country, a mere piece of land. It is something more: it is a metaphor, poetry, something invisible but very tangible. It is vibrating with certain energy fields that no other country can claim.

For almost ten thousand years, thousands of people have reached to the ultimate explosion of consciousness. Their vibration is still alive, their impact is in the very air; you just need a certain perceptivity, a certain...

Overview

India is not just a geography or history. It is not only a nation, a country, a mere piece of land. It is something more: it is a metaphor, poetry, something invisible but very tangible. It is vibrating with certain energy fields that no other country can claim.

For almost ten thousand years, thousands of people have reached to the ultimate explosion of consciousness. Their vibration is still alive, their impact is in the very air; you just need a certain perceptivity, a certain capacity to receive the invisible that surrounds this strange land.

It is strange because it has renounced everything for a single search, the search for the truth.

In these pages, we are treated to a spellbinding vision of what Osho calls "the real India," the India that has given birth to enlightened mystics and master musicians, to the inspired poetry of the Upanishads and the breathtaking architecture of the Taj Mahal. We travel through the landscape of India's golden past with Alexander the Great and meet the strange people he met along the way. We are given a front-row seat in the proceedings of the legendary court of the Moghul Emperor Akbar, and an insider's view of the assemblies of Gautama the Buddha and his disciples.

In the process, we discover just what it is about India that has made it a magnet for seekers for centuries, and the importance of India's unique contribution to our human search for truth.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A best seller in India in 1997, this collection of discourses has been completely overhauled for the U.S. edition and defies categorization. While it could easily be classified under spirituality or stories of Indian saints, this would not be conclusive, as the book also contains 42 full-color photographs celebrating the grandeur of India. Osho, who is considered an enlightened being by some and a charlatan by others, is equally unclassifiable. An erstwhile professor of philosophy, Osho laces his talks with anecdotes, stories, and references drawn from history, mythology, and literature. This book is a collection of such stories, along with tales of saints and enlightened masters from the Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Jain, Sikh, and Sufi traditions of India, illustrating the state of an enlightened master and the inner resonance between the master and disciple. According to Osho, this tradition is unique to India. While this may be arguable, the stories and pictures make the book highly accessible to all readers, including those unacquainted with India and Eastern mysticism. For general collections. Ravi Shenoy, Naperville P.L., IL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
From the Publisher
"Few people have understood India like Osho. It was an understanding at many levels: the philosophical, the historic, the purely emotional— and even the political and literary, the wanton and the spiritual. His was a holistic understanding, an understanding that went beyond words, into the unchartered terrain of true love."—Pritish Nandy, journalist and TV personality

    from lonely planet to lovely planet?

    breath-takingly told book that paints a picture of the golden india the spirit of illumined past, the vedas and the gita, are rebirthed in these beautiful stories about the ancient mystics, kings and beggars. it is an introduction by heart into the absolutely unique, multifaceted society, that lays on the foundation of enlightenment - with all its obscurities and paradoxes. if you truly wish to get a glimpse of the true beauty of india behind everyday industrial and economical newsflashes, not to speak about capitalized exotism sold out by travel companies, you must read this book - by the heart.

    A Spiritual Journey

    India My love is a mystery tour. Our guide on the journey is Osho, a man with an extraordinary gift for storytelling and a mystic who brings a uniquely contemporary freshness to the tales of India¿s golden past. He introduces us to beggars and kings, wise men and fools, lovers and warriors, artists and scholars - and they come alive on the page, animating the enchanted landscape of an India that even today continues to intrigue and attract the seeker and adventurer within us all.
